Reviewing Marvel's Loki (Spoiler Alerts)

 

The God of Mischief is back, and with an all new Disney+ series. But how is Loki alive? The last time we seen Loki he was killed by Thanos, or was it? Maybe it was just that version of Loki that died.

Loki has proven many times that he can escape death either with the use of magic, or the tesseract. Well, he has done it again, sort of. If you remember in Avengers: Endgame Tony, Steve, and Scott had to retrieve the the tesseract. Tony had the tesseract until Hulk swung open the stairway door knocking him down and making the tesseract slide over the Loki's foot. Loki then grabbed the tesseract and teleported away.

Loki was a fantastic and focused journey from the first episode, to the season finale.  The door is WIDE open for the Multiverse of Madness, and the introduction of Kang the Conqueror in the next Antman film.  If you haven't taken the time to watch it, do yourself a favor and do so now before reading the remainder of this article.


***SPOILERS AHEAD***


With this version of Loki unleashed, he is quickly found by the TVA (Time Variance Authority) and incarcerated. Loki meets Agent Mobius and is asked to assist him on locating a deadly variant.  A variant we learn is another version of Loki. The other variant of Loki is causing major trouble to the timeline and must be stopped. Loki and Agent Mobius have found out that this version of Loki is a female variant named Sylvie. All doesn't go according to plan, when Loki chooses to follow the other Loki into another timeline against Agent Mobius' orders.

Sylvie and Loki teleport to the TVA headquarters and find them selves in a bit of trouble, so Loki quickly steals a TVA pad to teleport them to another location. Unfortunately, Loki teleported them to Lamentis which is a planet that its moon is going to crash into it. While on Lamentis, Loki finds out that all the members of the TVA are variants and Loki has developed feelings for Sylvie (which is a LOT to unpack, and we aren't qualified to do that).

The TVA was able to capture Loki and Sylvie before the destruction of Lamentis. Loki reveals to Agent Mobius that the TVA is lie, Agent Mobius starts to question Ravonna's words and she has Agent Mobius pruned and or deleted to protect the TVA. It is now clear that Ravonna and Sylvie have a pass due to Ravonna abducting Sylvie as a child. Ravonna takes Loki and Sylvie to the Time Keepers to face judgement, but the plan is foiled when Hunter B-15, who has befriended Sylvie and helps them escape their fate.

Loki and Sylvie find out the Time Keepers are fake when Sylvie decapitates one of them. Loki begins to confess his love to Sylvie just as he is pruned by Ravonna. Loki is awaked by different variants of himself in The Void. The Void is where the TVA dumps their branches of time and it is protected by a mystical guard dog name Alioth. Loki comes face to face with Classic Loki, Kid Loki, Boastful Loki, Gator Loki, and President Loki.

Sylvie ends up in The Void when she pruned herself to find Loki and has help from a not so dead Agent Mobius. So Loki, Sylvie, Agent Mobius, Classic Loki, Kid Loki, and Gator Loki devise a plan to take down Alioth. Agent Mobius teleports back to the TVA to take it down. Classic Loki causes a distraction and gives his life to help Loki and Sylvie enchant Alioth and move beyond The Void.

Loki and Sylvie surprisingly welcome by Miss Minutes at The Citadel at the End of Time. Miss Minutes intentions don't seems all that innocent with playing both sides with Loki and Sylvie, and Ravonna. Meanwhile, Loki and Sylvie come face to face "He Who Remains", also known as Kang. Kang offers a deal to Loki and Sylvie to either kill him and unleash the Multiverse War, or let him step aside and have Loki and Sylvie take over The Citadel at the End of Time and the TVA. 

In the end, Loki and Sylvie want different things. Sylvie doesn't trust anyone and Loki can't be trusted. Sylvie sends Loki back to a TVA and kills this version of Kang. In doing this, branching the timelines and starting the Multiverse War.

Loki will return in Season 2
